How they are participating
Samahope uses the power of the Internet to fund life-saving surgeries and health interventions in poor parts of the world. Millions of women and children suffer from treatable medical conditions but lack the funds to undergo corrective surgery. The world’s poorest 1/3 receive only 3.5% of all the surgeries performed worldwide. Local clinics, hospitals and medical charities try to fill this “surgical gap” with volunteer doctors from overseas and by training local medical talent and health workers, but must raise their own funds. Samahope partners with local charity hospitals and global health organizations with a track record of excellent care and fiscal discipline. This Giving Tuesday, we plan to spread the word about Samahope and our patients needing life-saving surgeries. Please participate by visiting our website to learn more about our work and to give life!
